Dates: Saturday, September 7 to Thursday September 12, 2024

Location: 15 minutes outside of Ubud, Bali, Indonesia. 

Head to the magical island of Bali. Come home to yourself.

Combine your love of yoga, travel, food, and nature on a retreat to Bali with Danielle. 

 

If you've never been to Bali, or have only seen the touristy side, then get ready for a culturally and spiritually rich experience. You will see first-hand how Balinese devotion and ceremony permeate all aspects of life. You will be touched by the colourful daily rituals, offerings and ordinary magic.

This five night retreat allows us to dive even deeper into the teachings of yoga to give you the benefits of being present, reconnecting with yourself, and tuning in to your own wants and needs. Slow down your mind, bring clarity to your thoughts, and gain insights into your own inner world.

There will be the yoga, meditation and philosophy that you've come to know and love with Danielle from Santosha Yoga Australia, together with cultural experiences and insights into Balinese life.

By carving out dedicated time to deepen your practice, you will create the head and heart space for learning and applying tools to support your wellbeing, so that you can embed them into your daily routine.

When immersing yourself in a new and exciting environment, you are more open to trying new experiences and challenging the usual stories about what you can and can't do.

You will be guided to explore yoga poses, breathwork and meditation methods that work for your unique body, mind and soul. All whilst surrounded by Balinese culture and nature that will capture your heart.

Santosha Yoga Australia retreats are inclusive, accessible and welcoming for everyone, but especially for people who feel intimidated by many of the mainstream portrayals of yoga.

Danielle Bendall

Danielle has led multiple retreats over the last 7 years. She treasures the opportunity to deep-dive into the richer and more subtle practices of yoga that a retreat can provide.

Teaching for 10 years and practicing for more than 20, Danielle will share how to embed these practices off the mat and into your daily life.

Our retreat venue is 15 minutes from the centre of Ubud. The property is surrounded by tropical Balinese gardens and lush jungle. It feels secluded and tucked away despite being so close to busy Ubud. 

 

We will begin each day with meditation and yoga, try different techniques in mindfulness and breathwork, and explore the teachings of yoga through in-depth workshops.

 

There will be ample free time in the afternoons to relax by the pool and do nothing, take advantage of the onsite spa services, or to head into Ubud and explore the surrounding village.

Our evenings will end with relaxing practices designed to help you sleep soundly, such as restorative yoga, yoga nidra or meditation.

Our retreat includes a traditional Balinese water purification ritual at a local temple. This is a very special experience that was loved by all guests in 2023.

Importantly, all activities are optional: you are free to participate in as much or as little as you desire.

We will be nourished with delicious vegetarian meals at our onsite restaurant. All meals are included from dinner on our first night to breakfast on our last day, except for one dinner which will be held offsite (additional expense).

This retreat is for you if:

  • You've always wanted to go on a yoga retreat but were worried that you wouldn't fit in amongst a group of young, bendy bodies.

  • You want to escape from "busyness" and start to include rest, relaxation and self care into your routine.

  • You spend a lot of time focused on other people's needs and would like some time for yourself.

  • You are looking for heart based connections with like minded others.

  • You want to live your life in alignment with your values and priorities, and need some clear head space to make decisions.

  • You would like a break  from the ordinary, a circuit breaker from your old habits and patterns.

  • You want to explore the teachings of yoga further than you can in your regular weekly class.

  • You want to experience Bali in a safe, supported and authentic way.

Feedback from Bali 2023 retreat

Dani put together the perfect program, with the right mix of yoga, workshops and off-site cultural wellness activities.

Nat, Tas

Beautifully structured and welcoming, especially for those new to yoga. No fuss and unpretentious but always amazing group dynamics and knowledge of yoga and meditation practices. Courtney, Tas

Attending a yoga retreat is something I never imagined myself doing. It has exceeded my expectations. Danielle is a wonderful teacher that focuses on the individual needs and abilities of each person. Michelle.
